Data Fellows WWW two years old!


Date: April 22nd, 1996

The Data Fellows WWW server has been running since April 1994. We've gone through many changes during this time, but because of the massive positive feedback from our users, it has been fun all the time.

We've served hundreds of thousands of users from all over the world. F-PROT demonstrations have been downloaded more than 10000 times and our public beta programs have been particularily succesful.

Our most popular service has been the Virus Description Database, and we are currently serving around 50,000 individual requests for virus descriptions per month!

Birthday sweepstakes

To celebrate our birthday, we arranged a competition and gave out software worth of 10,000 US$ in prices. See the list of winners. Thanks for all who participated!
